“From coastal resiliency and sustainable green practices to the preservation of affordable housing, world-class public art, and vibrant, year-round programming in award-winning public spaces, Battery Park City leads the way in many of the measures that makes cities livable."

After limited lawn closures last November, allowing Battery Park City’s heavily-used green spaces time for healing and regrowth, temporary fencing has now been removed from the Rockefeller Park south lawn, Rector Park East lawn, Murray Street triangle, lawns adjacent to the Irish Hunger Memorial, and the North End Avenue lawn. These areas join Rockefeller North lawn, Rector Park West lawn, and Teardrop Park lawns, which remained open throughout the winter.

As a reminder, “Pet Free Area” signage is also installed on our lawns. While leashed pets are permitted on hard surfaces throughout Battery Park City, they are not permitted on parks lawns and green areas. Read more: It’s a Dog’s Life in BPC.

We look forward to seeing you across our parks and public spaces this season!
